If you have just installed the Farm Town game and getting started, this guide will help you with things you need to be aware of. There are some mean and greedy people on Farm Town and they like to trick people. This guide will list some of the things you will need to be aware of when playing the game.
“Double Click My Shoes and I’ll Hire You”
If you go to the market place on Farm Town, you are bound to see someone say, “Double click my shoes and I’ll hire you”. For the ones in the room that know the trick to this will immediately warn you. If there is no one in there who knows better, you may just fall for it and click their shoes. So, what does it do? It automatically hires the person you double clicked. When you double click someone’s shoes, you are hiring them to work in your farm. Once you hire them, there is nothing you can do to get rid of them.
What happens is, you double click their shoes and the menu opens so fast that you can’t see it. If you click their shoes one time, the menu will open and you will see the option of hiring this person to work for you. If you double click twice, it will open the menu, and click the Hire This Person link. Because it is so fast, you can hardly see it. The link is located in the right place of the menu to be clicked when you do that.
So, if you see someone saying Double Click My Shoes and I’ll Hire You, you know what they are up too. Call them out. Warn people in that room what the person is trying to do. A lot of new people will fall prey to this scam. It’s really not going to hurt you because all they can do is harvest your stuff. However, it is wrong for them to trick you into giving them a job.
Being Hired and There is Nothing to Harvest
Sooner or later, you will be hired and end up at an empty field. I have been done this way, quite a bit. I would then ask the owner why they hired me and there was nothing to harvest. Of course you wouldn’t get an answer because the owner wouldn’t be there. Why? Because he/she just hired you to kick you out of the Market Place. It is what is known as “Mass Hiring”. People will hire 10 different people in a room just to clear the room out. Clearing the room out gives them a better chance of being hired. So, they hire a bunch of people and get the room to themselves for a couple of minutes. This is very dirty, but it is something you need to be aware of. The bad thing about it, you won’t know it until you get there and see that the field is empty. There’s nothing you can do about it. You can leave them a nasty note, but that’s not going to do anything.
